Firestone and Ford Sued Over Faulty Tires
Mitsubishi Motors admitted yesterday that it had systematically concealed customer complaints about tens of thousands of defective automobiles since 1977. The admission came a month after its top executive had denied accusations that it had covered up problems that included faulty fuel tanks, clutches, crankshafts and brakes.

Under Pressure From Turkey, Microsoft Attempts to Write Armenian Genocide Out of History Books
The Microsoft Corporation is under fire because its Encarta encyclopedia calls the death of at least 600,000 Armenians during the last days of the Ottoman Empire the first genocide of the 20th Century. This is certainly not a radical assertion. Most historians agree with that characterization. But after the Turkish government objected, Microsoft’s Encarta reportedly told some of its authors to consider the so-called other side of the story. The authors say they were told, by Microsoft, that if they did not agree to certain revisions the company would publish it with Microsoft’s revisions and without their names.
